Message to Students: COVID-19 and classroom absence information
We hope you are well and enjoying the fall term. As COVID-19 and its variants continue to affect our communities, it is crucial that we all take measures to minimize its spread.
At Acadia, we are committed to following the guidelines set by Nova Scotia Public Health to ensure your safety. We encourage you to stay updated by regularly visiting their Coronavirus (COVID-19) website.
While there is no longer a mask mandate on campus, Acadia embraces a mask-friendly environment. Wearing masks remains an effective way to safeguard yourself and others from COVID-19, its variants, and other illnesses.
If you experience any COVID-19 symptoms or have tested positive, we ask that you:
- Stay home and schedule a COVID-19 test,
- Download and complete the Declaration of Cause for Absence form, and
- Communicate with your professors and instructors. They are here to support you and will work with you to ensure your academic success.
If you need further support, please know that the Student Health Centre offers a range of medical services and resources.
Let's continue to prioritize our health and respect the well-being of others.
Stay safe, stay healthy, and take care!
